A pod(s) of orcas were seen from the shore near mountain point. When the pod(s) was first observed they were in the center of the channel between Ketchikan and Annette Island. Tail slapping, spy hopping, and at least one breach was observed. The pod(s) then moved further south, and were last seen near the shores of Bold Island.
The B7s have been identified. It is believed that there was another pod with them. I estimate that the orcas were at least one mile away from me, therefore, it may be difficult to determine the identity of the pod(s) and individual whales. However, it is believed that the I16s (part of the I15s) were with the B7s.
Many thanks to Northern Resident Orca Population for identifying these whales for me.
